Injury Prevention: Toy Safety - Learning Course (EH03 - LC)


Description
In addition to providing children with fun and enjoyment, toys help children develop skills, test their abilities, engage their imagination, and learn so much. Toys can let children create on their own or practice working together with others. Unfortunately, many children are injured every day from toys that are supposed to be fun. This course will focus on preventing injuries from toys in child care settings. It will cover child development and toys, toy safety, storage of toys, cleaning toys, tracking injuries, and recalled toys. Learners can engage with the material in either audio/visual or written formats. Your trainers are child care health consultants and are happy to work with you to help you understand the course material and be successful in your learning.
